Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas and Style Guide

Hello friends, and happy October!

Fall is my favorite season and it is also a popular time for weddings. Figuring out what to wear for different dress codes can be challenging anytime of year, and some of you may find it even more challenging as the weather gets cooler. I’m going to help you tackle your wedding guest woes with a style guide from The Black Tux and a breakdown of wedding guest dress ideas to wear for all the various levels of formality. Before I begin, if you are wondering what is appropriate to wear based on the time of the event or what it says on your invitation, check out the style guide below.

The Wedding Guest Style Guide - Plus a breakdown of what to wear for each occassion.

Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas

Now that you have an idea of what is acceptable to wear at the upcoming wedding you will attend, here is some inspiration for each type of dress. Listed from lowest to highest price, I picked out an affordable option (less than $75), updgrade option ($76-$150) and splurge option ($151+) so you can easily find something in your price range.

WHITE TIE

I hope this guide and these outfit ideas help you figure out your “What to wear?!” dilemma, if you have an upcoming wedding to attend. Many of the dresses above can work for couple different levels of formality, like black tie optional and black tie. Investing in a dress that transcends different types of events is key. Personally, I think it is best to lean on the side of being slightly overdressed than under-dressed. If you can’t decide between a couple of options, pick the more formal one!

Rent the Runway can also be a great choice if you do not need another dress in your closet or you are attending a wedding that has a unique feel for which you know you’d never wear the dress you want to wear again.  If your date is having trouble finding appropriate attire, the Black Tux has lots of wedding suit and tuxedo options to choose from.  It’s basically like Rent the Runway for men!

Have you or has your partner ever used the Black Tux? I’d love to know how you liked it. I would love to know if you have any dress recommendations as well. If you have any clothing dilemma’s you are facing, I am happy to help you make a decision too. Just let me know!

Cheers,

Sarah Camille

How to Style White Jeans for Fall – A Summer to Fall Transition

Hello friends!  Are you asking yourself how we are halfway through September like I am?!  Well with the official start of fall is this Friday, I’d like to share with you all a summer to fall outfit and some advice on wearing white jeans for fall. Many people quickly put away their summer clothes around this time of year, but there is really no need to rush and put away all your summer clothes just yet. Allow yourself to transition your clothes slowly, following the lead of the transitioning seasons.

You can wear many summery clothes, even white jeans during the fall by adding more layers and changing your shoes. Some people are afraid to wear white after Labor Day, but white jeans in particular can be a fun way to spice up your fall outfits and look fresh. Now I will share how I styled my white jeans for summer and then how I changed up the outfit to better accommodate cooler, fall weather.

White Jeans for Summer

For me, this is a pretty common outfit to wear during the summertime. The flowy olive top is so comfortable to wear on a humid day, which we get a lot of in the D.C. area! To contrast the flowy-ness of my top, I opted for my favorite pair of white skinny jeans. In addition, these strappy sandals are a summer staple. If you tend to steer away from heels, this particular brand is super comfy!

White Jeans for Fall

With the same white jeans and olive top, I switched out my sandals for some warmer booties and threw on a denim jacket. Viola! I am all set for fall’s cooler weather. These booties are my all-time favorites and the taupe-y, grey color pairs nicely with the white jeans. In general, if you are wearing a dark top with white jeans, I would opt for a more neutral bootie or shoe.

Denim jackets and cardigans are also a perfect way to take a summer outfit into the fall. This denim jacket has the perfect amount of stretch and I like how it stops above my hips. It is also super affordable! I’ve also been loving this crossbody bag recently. It is just the right size for weekend activities and adventures.

In addition to denim jackets and cardigans, I love adding scarves to transition my summer outfits to fall. How do you transition your outfits from summer to fall? Do you dare to wear white jeans for fall, and what about during the winter? I would love to hear more about your style and your fall staples.

Hope you are all having a great week so far.

Cheers!

NEW: Warby Parker Fall Collection 2017

Get the scoop on the Warby Parker Fall Collection. There are eyeglasses and sunglasses for every style!
Just in time for the cooler weather we are getting in D.C., the new Warby Parker Fall Collection is out today!  I’m so excited to join Warby Parker in this release and share with you all their latest line.  Warby Parker is known well for their standard eyeglasses, but as someone with 20/20 vision, I’ve always zeroed in on their sunglasses. Thankfully their Fall Collection has both!

The Warby Parker Fall Collection

Warby Parker‘s new collection is inspired by leather-bound books at a college library and features a rich color palette. The collection also features two new styles — the ultra-feminine Mona and the round-lensed Logan. From chic and shiny rose gold to edgy, jet silver and classic tortoiseshell, I’m sure you’ll agree this collection has something for everyone. Now what are we waiting for? Here is the new Warby Parker Fall Collection!

How Warby Parker Works

If you are unfamiliar with Warby Parker, you can order your five favorite frames for free. Then, you have the ability to try them on and pick which one you like best. I love this option because it allows me to get opinions from friends and get a consensus on which sunglasses fit my face best.

Since I am in the market for some new shades, Warby Parker’s new collection is perfect timing. But now I have to contemplate which ones to try out. I recently took Warby Parker’s quiz to see which frames work best for me and help me decide between a few styles. You can take the style quiz too, if you’d like to be pointed in the right direction.  I have a particularly narrow face, so it was nice to see that there are certain styles that they recommend for my face shape and personal style.

MORE Warby Parker Sunglasses

When it comes to my go-to look, I usually go for a classic shape and tortoiseshell finish for sunglasses, like the Piper and Downing styles above. I think Warby Parker’s new rose gold Tansley sunglasses would be super chic for fall and winter, while also spicing up my current accessories for fall.

That said, I am indecisive and would love to hear from you all! Which sunglasses should I get and which ones would you get? Do you have a favorite style in the fall collection? If you have tried Warby Parker or do you have a different go-to sunglass brand! Let me know all about it.

Cheers!
